Pay Attention
The Wood Brothers

This song is in the key of C major and is 3/4 time.
He uses pretty standard chord voicings.  The only one that
might be foreign to some would be the Gm9 which is played like this:

E|--5--|
B|--3--|
G|--3--|
D|--5--|
A|--5--|
E|--3--|

I usually play it without the root but that’s just my preference.
Not sure how Oliver plays it each time through.  Anyhow, here’s the song...

Intro:

3/4 ||  C  |  C  |  Am  |  G  |  F  |  
 |  Bb  |  Am  |  G  |  G  ||

(Listen to CD for proper strumming and timing)

VERSE:

C	      F           C 	G
Please pay attention to me

	  C                       Gm9
Was the last thing I heard as I drifted to sleep

      F	     C
With children to tend to

      F        C
and a worrying mind

     F           C
With too much to do

    Gm9
and not enough time


CHORUS:

  F	       C
I hate to be needy

F	      C
Selfish and greedy

    Am           F          C
But please pay attention to me


BREAK:  (same as intro - “Me” is on the C chord of this break)

	..Me
3/4  ||  C  |  C  |  Am  |  G  |  F  |  
 |  Bb  |  Am  |  G  |  G  ||


VERSE 2:  (same chords as first verse)


C	      F          C		G
Please pay attention to me

	  C				  Gm9
Was the last thing I heard comin’ out of my dream

	F		C
I got something to tell you

	  F		 C
And the sun has gone down

    F		    C
And if you don’t listen

     Gm9			Gm
I’ll talk much too loud


CHORUS:  (Same as 1st chorus)

  F          C
I hate to be Needy

F	      C
Selfish and greedy

    Am          F           C	   G
But please pay attention to me


BRIDGE:

Am				C
Why don’t you look my way

    Am                 Gm
I’m waving my arms and callin’ your name

	 F            C
There’s too much to mention

     F             C
That grabs your attention

   Am		  F           C
So please pay attention to me


HARMONICA SOLO:   (starts on C on the word “me” from the chorus)


	..Me
3/4  ||  C  |  F  |  C  |  G  |  C  |  
 |  Gm  |  Gm  |  F  |  C  |  F  |  C  
 F

|  C  |  G  |  G  ||


BRIDGE 2:

Am			      C
I Guess I could cut myself free

    Am                       Gm
And why should I care if you listen to me

     F             C
With children to tend to

      F        C
And a worrying mind

     F           C
With too much to do

    Gm9		   Gm
And not enough time


OUTRO CHORUS:

  F		C
I hate to be needy

F	     C
Selfish and greedy

  F            C
I hate to keep asking

F             C
Beggin’ and pleadin’.

    F          C
I’m down on my knees

      F           C
Under your window screamin’

Am          F           C      G
Please pay attention to me

Am          F           C      G
Please pay attention to me

      Am          F           C
Yeah, please pay attention to me...

Great job on a great tune. Try playing C7 to C instead of Gm9 to GM. Doesn't sound exactly the same but close enough to entertain most of the drunks I encounter. :-)
